Patient Review Highlights
I approached the doctor for my mother's chest pain. I was expecting him to advise angiography (as i read on net) but after detailed examination of mom he advised just few inexpensive investigations. On that basis he gave some medicines and now mom is completely relieved. I am impressed that the doctor doesn't advise a long list of expensive investigations and treats the patients so well. Thanks sir.
I am a heart patient and can you suggest some medicine to clear arteries. I do not want mechanical treatment. Thanks.
I'm 55 having problem with urination. I don't have sugar but have hypertension I take medicine for BP. My problem is after having urine I have the urge to urine again as if my urine isn't complete. I don't have any kind of pain during urine but the flow is less. Kindly suggest.
A heart attack does not always have obvious symptoms, such as pain in your chest, shortness of breath and cold sweats. In fact, a heart attack can actually happen without a person knowing it. This condition is known as a ‘silent heart attack’, medically known as ‘silent ischemia’, occurring due to the shortage of oxygen supply to the heart muscle.
The causes of a silent heart attack are similar to that of a heart attack. They include-
- Obesity or excess weight
- Lack of exercise
- Disorders such as diabetes
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Age, usually above 65
- Heart diseases
- Consumption of tobacco or smoking
A silent cardiac arrest makes one more vulnerable to another heart attack that could be fatal.
The only method to diagnose if you had a silent heart attack is through imaging tests, such as echocardiogram, electrocardiogram or others. These tests can show certain changes which might be indicative of a heart attack.
An analysis of one’s overall health and the symptoms can aid in deciding whether few more tests are required.
How would you prevent a silent heart attack?
- Get your cholesterol and blood pressure count tested regularly.
- Refrain from smoking.
- Be aware of your body and call on a doctor if you feel there’s anything which is bothering you.
